I don't know if The Guide wants fictional beings in it, but this is indeed all true based on The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy itself, so it's still factual information. Thanks!

Not really EG material, I'd say. <./>ThePost</.> would be a better forum for this kind of writing.

Well now wait a minute. May I ask why? I figured it would be OK, I mean, the Goglafrinchans don't exist, but it is technically a guide entry on what DNA made up, it's factual based on his works...I thought since the "earth" entry of 'mostly harmless' exists, this could, too. May be wrong, tho. Thanks for clarifying!

Sadly, a lot of DNA's own work wouldn't meet 'em, but that's what they are and we're stuck with them for now... smiley - sorry

That said, there is still the opportunity to have a wider exposure of this piece in <./>AggGag</.>/CAC-C, the CAC Continuum, published weekly in smiley - thepost the H2G2 Post.

And so it shall be.

If only because most of the descendants of Golgafrinch, who lurk here-about waiting for revelation instead of reading the original Testaments of DNA, will be mightily smitten to realise their origins.
I do love to educate the ignorant.

PS:

I will not make a copy but link directly to DZ's copy at A2163520
allowing her the opportunity to make future revisions (such as removing at least one "l" from 'alltogether') to the piece which will be linked forever from the pages of the CAC-Continuum Archives.

Never! In fact DZ was an AggGag contributor long before she became a postie. I distinctly recall not belly-aching about it when you stole her away to write her own regular column for . And in this particular instance it was she who approached me in regard to the entry in question. http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/alabaster/F59446?thread=402071 That thread's title will confirm the long standing relationship DZ has had with <./>AggGag/CAC and her first posting will clearly show that she initiated this action. ~jwf~

I knew you were teasing. smiley - biggrin
But reading my response now in the cold light of dawn it really sounds quite snarky. My impression of an irrate pedant sometimes gets over the top.

I did this in several other postings yesterday where my irony was a tad sharp and cold in several threads. Now I'm gonna have to spend this evening making amends and offering apologies all round.

Must remember that the printed word doesn't always carry the blustering tones of the funny voice I think I'm writing in. Especially across the dark cold grey Atlantic. Mind you, even in real life I tend to unintentionally piss people off with my mock rantings. I once intimidated someone so badly that they peed their pants when my intention was to make them laugh at my playing the bear with sore nose.

Maybe if I just really got mad at someone sometime and let it all hang out for once, all my sublimated repressions wouldn't be leaking through my mock.

I have included Golgafrinchams along with Flameofgold's piece on online chatrooms in a new issue of the <./>AggGag</.>/CAC-Continuum which is at A2490202 and while I may make a few tweaks over the next 24 hours it will be available there for smiley - thepost as needed.
